They Might Be Giants has made a small cottage industry out of doing kid's music and theme songs for TV shows (like the theme for Malcolm in the Middle and The Daily Show). Their kid's music albums have saved me from having to listen to Raffi . . . . they're actually pretty bearable.

That thing you do is better.

 

Don't get me wrong, I like that song - but this one takes more melodic chances (for what it is, anyway). There are more things that I didn't see coming but like in this one. I would buy it.

Is it just me or does the 'sun' chorus bit in the middle sound just like Jason Falkner?


lol.. what the hell am I doing listening to this over and over?
:D

 

That first change before it hits the more Schlesingery peak, where the vocals kind of intimate it before the guitar kicks in was unexpected - and I dig it.

 

Yes, I must've listened to it about 10 times yesterday.:facepalm:
